“Here In the New There” – Chaz Flud

Posted on Sunday January 6th, 2019

Charles “Chaz” Flud is Erma Tabernacle’s Music Director.  He offers God’s Word on January 6.  This message, “Here In the New There” draws upon the Gospel of Mark chapter 5, verses 1 through 20 (Mk 5:1-20).  I, Pastor Glenn, originally posted this at Tabernacle UMC’s Facebook page via its Facebook Live feature.  Let’s see how it turned out.

This was recorded from the Tabernacle balcony using my cell phone camera.  If you have questions or comments, please pass them along to me.

New Year Blessings,

“God In Us” – Jesus Christmas #4

Posted on Thursday January 3rd, 2019

Jesus Christmas (series slide)

Here is the 4th message (of 5) in the Jesus Christmas series.  “God In Us” has been re-recorded from December 23 (Sunday) worship at Erma Tabernacle.  It sets the stage for Christmas Eve, a day early.  The core scripture is not a usual one for this time of year – the Gospel of John, chapter 9, verses 1 through 9 (Jn 1:1-9).

Hopefully, you can view the final message in this series in the same location.  This makes five messages to help you have a better understanding of this vital aspect of the Christian story – God coming to earth to rescue us from our sin.

Questions?  Drop me a note.  Let’s start a conversation.

New Year Blessings,

Posted on Thursday December 20th, 2018

Along with Advent 2018 comes a new series for the season – Jesus Christmas.  The title is a gentle nudge at keeping our focus on Jesus during this time of year instead of being distorted by our society’s way of looking at Christmas.  “God With Us” starts us off.  It has been re-recorded from December […]
